Alright I have a question and I am not really sure how to word this in a way anyone would be able to understand but here goes; say I have a scene oh a character on their bed from the top view and I want to change to a scene where she is laying on her side how would I transition that smoothly ??

I would do the character in the bed then change background and use & so the character appears as soon as the seen changes and put her in the laying animation. Hope this helps!

how do you add weather effects and sound effects?

  1. sound sound_name —> to add a sound
    sound off —> to turn sound off
    music music_name —> to add music
    music off —> to turn music off

  2. You add the weather name to the background name using the words “with effect…”


For example:

Hey :blush: this is my third time using episode, however for this story I gave the readers a choice in customization, but I haven’t gotten the amount I wanted. How do I add all the options in customization for the episode INK characters, because I want everyone to have very different looks and ethnicity when they’re reading and creating themselves. Please help, I’d appreciate it so much :see_no_evil:

Here’s a template that has an updated character customization:

Please how can i create a directory spotlight storylike like this one

Hi! So I’m a new writer, although I have been a reader for over a year now. I have some fanfiction ideas, and I think Episode helps me get a view of how I would want characters to look like. So, the last time I did any sort of coding was in my Technology class in 7th grade, and I’m almost a sophomore now, so I don’t remember how to code anything, let alone on Episode. I just need some basic tips on how to do everything, and I would like help on the (kinda new) Limelight version of characters. I am not just going to do fanfiction stuff for TV shows and things like that, just FYI. I have an original story idea actually. I just need help on how to write the coding. I just think an Episode story writer would explain it better to me than the tutorials.

Choose spotlight at the start when creating your story.
Choose cinematic at the beginning.

Then to change to spotlight use:

To change back to cinematic:

I think this is how you do it. Check out the Episode portal guides - it has a section on Spotlight format which should mention this.

NOTE: You can only do this if you start your story in cinematic.
